Meatballs Soup

Eating soups is healthy, let’s also make it tasty!

Homemade beef broth, a lot of vegetables and meatballs, sounds good for me, what about you?

If you don’t want to play with making broth yourself, canned beef or chicken one will work as well, this will also save you some time.

You may dilute it with water since meatballs will contribute to broth as well.

Peppers are no friends of mine, they have a strange effect on my system. Is there another good vegetable substitute for this one? When I was little I used to fish out frikadelki and skip the broth, which made my mother a little miffed.

This soup was disappointing. For such a great mixture of vegetables the broth was unbelievably bland. The meatballs too.

I am one of meatball soup lover, but i usually add noodle and green vegetables for this recipe.
